Akrapovič is a manufacturer of premium exhaust systems for motorcycles and performance cars. It is renowned around the globe as a very innovative high-tech company that uses advanced technology and high-quality materials in exhaust system design. Akrapovič exhaust systems excel in improved performance, their unmistakable sound, innovative design, light construction, craftsmanship, and durability. The company’s state-of-the-art factories in Slovenia also include an in-house titanium foundry and metallurgical laboratory. Akrapovič has over 1,500 employees and sells its products in over eighty countries. Racing has always been in the company’s DNA. The technical services and support that it provides to MotoGP, WorldSBK, MXGP, DTM, and other teams are also the result of this racing heritage and know-how, which the company successfully applies to motorcycle and performance car exhaust systems.
Akrapovič is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2021.
Igor Akrapovič began motorcycle racing in 1977 in 250 GP two-strokes, then 1000 cc four-strokes in F1 Open Class, and then in Superbike class by the end of his racing in 1988-1989. He founded a motorcycle tuning shop, Skorpion, with a staff of six, where they made their exhausts because higher-quality Western aftermarket exhausts were too expensive, and those made in the Eastern Bloc were of inadequate quality. Akrapovič says he was motivated by the poor quality of aftermarket exhausts available to the public compared to those used by professional racing teams. He said that the welded pipes on the market had walls that were too thick, and those racing-quality systems were too expensive and difficult for the average customer to obtain. He designed his exhaust system, which was sufficient to his requirements, based on the experience gained in the field of motorcycle tuning. Steel was replaced with materials such as carbon fiber and plastic.

In 1993, Kawasaki in Germany tested the exhaust systems and in 1994, Akrapovič exhausts were first used in international competition, in the ESBK and WSBK. Other Pro Superbike championship teams, Yamaha, Suzuki, Ducati, and Honda also began using Akrapovič exhausts.

In 1997, the company changed its name from Skorpion to Akrapovič and that year Akira Yanagawa became the first to win an exhaust sound contest using an Akrapovič straight pipe exhaust system on a 1984 Honda Civic. After strong growth in sales, particularly from Germany, with growth as high as 70% per annum, production capacity was expanded in 1999, moving location from a 450 m2 (4,800 sq ft) workshop to a than 3,000 m2 (32,000 sq ft) factory in Ivančna Gorica. This factory has since more than quadrupled in size to 13,000 m2 (140,000 sq ft) as of 2010.
In 2000, the first world championship title using an Akrapovič exhaust was won in the WSBK when Colin Edwards won the world championship title on his Castrol Honda SP-01. That year, the 600 SS class with Yamaha and Jörg Teuchert also won using an Akrapovič exhaust. Modifications made to the design saw the company enter into the American AMA Superbike and the Japanese All Japan Superbike Championship and then in 2002, the MotoGP class, allying with the Honda, Kawasaki, and Aprilia factory teams.
As income increased, the company invested in new technology and modernization, upgrading computers in 3-D planning of configurations, programming of tools, and computer-aided manufacture. In 2004, the company made its first contact with the automobile industry and in 2007 developed and equipped an exhaust system for a Formula 1 race car. In 2007, the company changed its logo. Akrapovič is now active as a supplier in the Porsche Sports Cup, where Porsche cars compete at six fully licensed and unlicensed series. In April 2007, the company was awarded the Best Exhaust Pipe Manufacturer Award from German Motorrad magazine, winning 42% of the votes. The company has since won the Best Brand award in every subsequent year with 2011 by its highest ever margin of votes.
The company partners with motorcycle manufacturers such as Yamaha, who offer Akrapovič cans as an optional factory- or dealer-fit equipment on the R1, and MT-01; and BMW Motorrad who offer an Akrapovič can as standard on the R nineT, S1000R, F800R, HP2 Megamoto, and as an option on most other bikes in their range. The exhausts are also on Kawasaki racing bikes, such as the Z1000, as well as Honda, Aprilia, and Suzuki. Akrapovič supplies the exhaust systems for Audi's LMP cars since 2009 and is an official Audi Sport partner for the first time in the 2012 season, Audi R18 and Audi A5 DTM. Many of the leading motorcyclists in the Supersport series are known to ride with Akrapovič fitted exhausts including Roger Lee Hayden who has one fitted to his Kawasaki.
